YouTube Video Transcription | 5 Ways to Gain More Subscribers

2018-12-02T13:11:59+00:00December 1st, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service, Video subtitling services|0 Comments

Youtube video transcription is a fairly lesser known trick to gain youtube subscribers fast.  And gaining new subscribers is probably the mission that occupies the biggest real estate in every Youtuber’s mind.  And for good reason.

If you want to be successful on YouTube, first you need to create quality content, more often.  And second, you need to have lots of people consuming and enjoying that content, so that you have repeat visitors and possible subscribers.

Easier said than done.

If you’ve got the talent to make entertaining videos, and are naturally good in front of the camera, half the battle is won.  This post will help you with actionable steps you can take to grow your Youtube subscriber base with the help of youtube video transcription.

5 Ways to Save Time and Money with Academic Transcription

2018-11-28T18:28:04+00:00November 27th, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service|0 Comments

Academic Transcription

As the name suggests, academic transcription relates to academia.  It can be related to, or include audio transcription of any of the following:

  • Graduate/Postgraduate Thesis
  • Research Interviews
  • Dissertations
  • Focus Group Discussions
  • Lectures and Seminars (Schools, Colleges, Universities)
  • Keynote Speaking Presentations
  • Technical Presentations from IT Companies like IBM, Microsoft etc.

Academic transcription may also be called thesis or dissertation transcription.  According to Wikipedia, “A thesis or dissertation is a document submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree or professional qualification presenting the author’s research and findings.”

For our team at Scriptosphere, compared to other forms of audio transcription, I’d say academic transcription is probably the most interesting for a couple of reasons:

  • Every research or thesis is on an entirely new subject
  • There’s always something new to learn
  • Most of the topics revolve around solving real issues
  • Majority of the […]

Seminar Transcription – How can it Help?

Is it worth spending money on?

Before we delve into seminar transcription, according to Wikipedia, “A seminar is a form of academic instruction, either at an academic institution or offered by a commercial or professional organization. 

It has the function of bringing together small groups for recurring meetings, focusing each time on some particular subject, in which everyone present is requested to participate.  This is often accomplished through an ongoing Socratic dialogue with a seminar leader or instructor, or through a more formal presentation of research. 

It is essentially a place where assigned readings are discussed, questions can be raised and debates can be conducted.”

Seminar transcription has existed since seminars first became prevalent.  No longer do you have to miss out on an important lecture because you had […]

What is Podcast Transcription?

Before we get into podcast transcription, let’s first address what podcasts are.  They sound like a spaceship, but they’re not.  Wikipedia says a podcast is a form of digital media that consists of an episodic series of audio, video, digital radio, PDF, or ePub files, subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a portmanteau of “(i)Pod” and “broadcast.” The Merriam Webster Tenth International Collegiate defines “podcast” as: a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet.

In simple language, it basically means a radio show you can download.

How to get the Biggest Bang for your Buck?

It can be often tricky to find dependable Audio Transcription Services online.  There are so many of them out there.  How do you know which one to pick?  For a newcomer, it may even sound like rocket science.  But it’s not.  Well, maybe it is a science in how to get as close to 99% as possible.  On the surface it literally means turning audio to text, which sounds easy, but is it?  It’s the same old adage of time vs money.  If you are new to audio transcription services, setting up alone can take a lot of time.  Even the best voice recognition software with the latest and greatest sophisticated AI starts going nuts the moment you introduce difficult accents, fast speech or background noise.  You still need human intelligence to process audio transcription services.

Best Transcription Headphones for under $100

Best transcription headphones for under $100

I have no idea why, when you search for best transcription headphones online, for ex. on Amazon, we get those horrible, stethoscope looking ancient headphones.  It would make sense if they were dirt cheap, like $5 or something.  But they’re not!  There is no emphasis on sound quality, or on noise cancellation.  You can get much better quality, value for money, and long term work out of the headphones we’ve recommended below.  I’m biased towards Sennheiser.  Because in my experience, they make some of the most reliable, best sounding headphones I’ve ever used.  And so obviously first in line is:

Sennheiser HD 280 PRO – $79.95
